A lunchtime bonus event:  Sister Cities, Brotherly Love

Join us at noon, Wed., June 9 on Zoom for a special lunchtime event to wrap up our year-long look at the theme of Recovery with Equity.
We'll chat with leaders from two of Philadelphia's sister cities, Frankfurt, Germany, and Tel Aviv, Israel, to hear how the pandemic has unfolded in these linked cities across an ocean and half-way around the world.
Sign up for the free, digital event here.
We're doing this event in partnership with Citizen Diplomacy International, which manages the Sister Cities program.   Many thanks to club member Siobhan Lyons, CEO of CDI, who did all the heavy lifting to set up this program.
Joining us from Tel-Aviv will be Avi Parsha, Senior Planner in the Strategic Planning Unit at the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality. An economist and urban planner, Avi leads the economic policy field in the unit.
Joining us from Frankfurt will be Eric Menges, who is the managing director of the agency that markets the FrankfurtRheinMain region worldwide.
We'll discuss with them these questions, as well others you might propose:

  • How did the pandemic affect your respective cities? 
  • What actions did your governments take and which were most effective at controlling the pandemic and supporting the economy
  • Any big mistakes
  • What did you learn? Any best practices that Philadelphia can learn from you? 
  • How are your cities doing now? How is vaccine rollout? What steps are you taking to reopen? How are people responding?
  • What policies or habits have changed as a result of the pandemic? 
  • How are you preparing for future pandemics? 
  • What were people in your city thinking as they watched how the U.S. handled the pandemic?     

This will be an informative, lively way to spend your lunch hour on June 9.  We hope you can join us.
